Nikolausmarkt – St Nicholas Market
On the 1st weekend of advent, the traditional Merzig St Nicholas Market is held around St Peter’s parish church.
More than 30 stalls offer handmade products, classic Christmas decorations and a wide range of culinary treats, accompanied by a programme of musical performances. St. Nicholas himself is also a guest at the market, with a little surprise for children.
On the Sunday, many of Merzig’s shops are open from 13:00 to 18:00 as part of the special Sunday trading arrangements. This day is also the beginning of the Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas lottery, with numerous attractive prizes to be won.
